    What Happens When the Battle Chooses You?

    Inspired by Pastor Steven Furtick & Lauren Daigle. By Tayla Santos My Story Living with an illness is tough. It’s especially tough when the doctors can’t even tell you exactly what it is that you have. “It must be some type of Autoimmune deficiency”, they say, and I leave the doctors office again with no answers and a series of antibiotics. Ive been sick on and off for three years now. Im great for about three months and then bed ridden for the next month with out warning. It’s tiring and its gotten to the point where all motivation to figure out what’s wrong with me has dissolved. So why…

  • My Little Brother is Cooler Than me…

    How My Little Brother Coped with our Parents Divorce For those of you who don’t know, the last three years have been tough on my family. With my dad leaving the family after my parents being together for almost 25 years, things felt like they were falling apart for a while, especially for my little brother, who was just turning 13 at the time. I was so proud of him when instead of turning to harmful methods of coping, turned to music and vented through writing song lyrics. Not only can my brother goal keep on the soccer field, but he is also a relatable song writer! My Brother is…

    Don’t Quit your Day Job!

    By: Tayla Santos Just a little life update for those of you who are at the edge of your seats waiting for me to tell y’all whats going on (literally not a soul on the entire planet). As some of you know, during the fall, winter and spring months I work as a Para Professional at an elementary school.

    Dating as a Young Christian Woman

    By Tayla Santos I never thought I would actually write anything even close to this topic and even as I start this off now, I’m a little hesitant and cautious of my wording and sentence structure because I don’t want anything to come off in the wrong way. I want to be sure that I am delivering what it is I have to say in a way that it will be understood and received, in the way I am intending it to. However, if it is not taken in the way I intend it, let it be taken in however God can use it to better the reader. Ever since…
